Before the meeting

The SWIG meeting at last year's W3C Technical Plenary was great.

This year's meeting announcement was sent 7 Feb 2005.

Annual SWIG meetings are a natural time to reconsider ideas that have been put on the back burner for a while, and to review whether things are going as planned. For example, RDF query and rules. DAWG's SPARQL spec has a CONSTRUCT mechanism that smells a lot like rules. If we had started both the WGs that were considered in Q4 2003 (query, rules), the DAWG could ask the rules WG if that was OK. But without a rules WG, community fora like www-rdf-rules and other MailingLists play an important role in scoping this work.
